. oops. last year florida's new republican governor, governor rick scott, decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expand opportunities for voting the way florida's two previous republican governors had done, the new one, republican governor rick scott, decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. tah-dah! long, long, long lines for early voting in polling places across florida. except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures like this from voters who live in florida emp since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. more. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the republican governor rick scott to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting, to open the polls on the last sunday before the election when many african-americans us
. the president of league of women voters urged republican governor rick scott to extend early voting. she said such long waits are discouraging to voters whose schedules or physical conditions cannot accommodate these types of delays. well back in 2008 then governor charlie crisp did extend early voting in florida because of the long lines. but at a fundraiser last night governor rick scott said he would not follow suit. mike grissom the executive director explained it this way. for one side to demand that we break the law because they feel like they are losing is wrong. what? by ensuring that all voters get to cast ballots? why on earth would a republican governor want to decrease early voting? well, it could be because the democrats aren't losing, they're actually kicking butt in early voting. according to an internal obama campaign document today that is exactly the case. here's what that document reveal reveals. in florida over a third of expected voters have already voted. as you can see early voters 50% voting for president obama. obama, 44% for mitt romney. election day that means mitt

, the league of women voters called on the republican governor, rick scott, to extend voting hours. scott's response was, early voting is going just fine and i hope everybody gets to vote. and today, democratic senator bell nelson, who himself is running for re-election, sent a letter to the governor asking the governor to extend early voting at least by one day. but we don't believe there has been a response from the governor on that. so at this point, we believe the voting will end an hour and a half. but if you're in line and you see the long line, in line at 7:00. you will be allowed to vote. even if it is 9 or 1:00 when you get -- 10:00 when you get in there. >>> give it some time, may the best man win? you have just a couple of days to cast your vote in the presidential election, then rush home to watch cnn's live coverage of the election, starting at 6 eastern. >>> you know, with many without power after superstorm sandy, people are finding creative ways to help each other. next, i want you to meet an 11-year-old girl who found a way to help her neighbors and the red cross. things

, which may mean that they're kind of writing it off. you have florida democrats asking governor rick scott to extend early voting because i think they know that it's working, and they want some more of it. and then just anecdotally, debbie wassermann schultz was apparently out in the streets arguing with a police officer in front of a polling station the other day. >> i wouldn't mess with her. >> no, you shouldn't. it seems like they're a little worried about florida. and again, not based on polling because i know there's polls that say both things. but i feel solid about florida for romney. >> yeah, i'd say they see it not as their most likely easiest path to victory. it's the one that's the furthest down the list. >>> up next, romney says he'll repeal obamacare day one if he's elected president. >>> but straight ahead, meet a conservative who's all for it. and no, i'm not talking about massachusetts governor mitt romney. circa 2005. though that would work, too. >>> first, as we head to break, that "30 rock" clip on florida that he has been begging us to play. >> now, like any penis
and absentee ballots. democrats dominate early voting. but guess what? the legislature, rick scott shortened the early voting days. and relative to the early voting hours we had in 2008 in south florida, they essentially cut them by 22% or about 24 hours. so it's going to make a difference. what we're going to see on election day now is a lot of those folks who probably would have early voted, they're going to show up on election day and cast ballots. so the question is how many of these people are actually voting for obama? how many are voting for romney? obviously we don't know. indications are from our poll is that romney is winning the key demographic or the key swing voters or the key swing state, and that's the independent voters. he is marginally winning them. he is also doing well with north florida democrats, certain crossover democrats, rural democrats. he pulls about 16% of them on our poll, where as obama only pulls about 5% republican support. so that crossover appeal so to speak of romney's in florida and the independent edge that he appears to have is making a difference. but

, but the governor, rick scott, was not inclined to extend the days. you know, it was the legislature that cut the number of days from 14 down to 8, and -- and, of course, you see what the result is with eight days. i was in line yesterday, verdictors and i started right in this spot, and by the time i got around there and in the door it was two hours and ten minutes for me from here until i got done voting. look how much longer the line is, you know, dominic, our camera man is panning around to give you an idea. we figure it's probably about a three to four-hour wait from the back of that line, three to four hours, folks in line are telling me, victor, that in fact that is right, the wait is three to four hours from the back of the line, and we expect to see this all the way through this evening. you know, i was talking to one party official who said, you know what, with the acrimonious nature of politics these days, it is so great to see people out in these lines, you know, staying, standing three to four hours to exercise their vote. at least that is one of the great things about, you know,

senator bill nelson there, has asked the republican governor, rick scott, to extend early voting. this being the last day. so far, the governor has said no. there's a lot for the justice department observers to keep an eye on, at least in the sunshine state. >> and so joe, are we talking about just extending it throughout the day instead of say, 7:00 being the time the polls close this evening, it would be 10:00 p.m., or are we talking about extending it into a whole other day? >> i have heard it both ways. i heard extending it into sunday, of course, that's problematic because as you know, the state of florida passed a bunch of different laws including cutting off that last sunday before election day as an early voting day. they say they did that because they wanted to give the election officials more time to prepare for tuesday. and the idea that they would now come at the 11th hour and switch back to the old scheme doesn't sound like something the governor would want to do. >> okay, and as it pertains to the justice department election monitors, what would they be doing as the
